Meet Janelle Mistarz

Hello and welcome to Seashells & Kettlebells Beach Fitness! I am Janelle Mistarz, a fitness and health professional with over 17 years of fitness industry experience. Seashells and Kettlebells is what drives me. In 2019, my husband Mike and I moved to the beach. The beach is a great place to heal your body, relieve stress and clear your mind. I am fueled by it's serenity and playfulness. You get the warmth of the sun, health benefits of Vitamin D and are cooled by the ocean breeze and crashing waves at your feet. It’s energizing and relaxing. I am also very passionate about strength training and all its health benefits. I found that through exercise, I have been able to build confidence in myself. And with that confidence and experience in the health and fitness industry, I hope to inspire and guide you to build your best self through customized fitness training and healthy lifestyle coaching that you can do from anywhere!

I have been personal training since 2005 and teaching group fitness since 2010. I specialize in functional fitness, core stability, balance training, and muscle conditioning. My clientele throughout the years has ranged from university students and faculty to stay at home moms and dads, high school athletes, corporate employees, and retirees. With moving to the beach, I have found a new passion of helping others manage their chronic pain through proper training. This is why I have immersed myself in learning and teaching Pilates based movements. If you are looking to train for your first race, improve performance or stability, manage pain, lose weight, or build and tone muscle - I can help you get there! I have worked in many different environments including commercial, corporate, and boutique fitness studios and can't wait to motivate you to be your best and share my passion with you!
